“Michele Angelo Petrone’s paintings of his cancer journey give a clear insight into the uncertainty, isolation and pain experienced by people with cancer. They also show the importance of the support and care which is given to cancer patients”.
“I think the art is excellent because so many people are locked within themselves and that prohibits recovery… Art is the freedom of expression that can be the outlet of pent-up emotions… I hope it will be universally accepted with hospitals and cancer groups everywhere, this is a real aid to recovery.”
“Sometimes it is difficult to find words to express the depth and intensity of feelings that arise when working with patients with a terminal illness. MAP Foundation workshops can help reach, express and understand those feelings which can be healing in itself and lead to a greater understanding of healthcare professionals’ role in accompanying the patient, and family on their difficult journey and also value the unique strengths of those working within the team.”
